The Application Process

Thank you for considering Saint Benedict Catholic School for your child.  The Admissions process is more than just an application.  The Admissions process allows you to get to know the school and the school to get to know you and your student. 

  • Request Information - The first step in the process is to submit an online inquiry.  When your inquiry is received, Gretchen Ridgely, our Director of Admissions & Communications will reach out to you.

  • Visit us, Virtually! - We will be hosting a Virtual Open House on Wednesday October 28, 2020 at 6pm via Zoom.  Register here to attend. Our Virtual Open Houses will have the participation of members of our administration and faculty, so it will be very informative and helpful in your admissions journey. (We look forward to welcoming guests back into our school in person, but at this time, and in an effort to keep our school healthy, we are unable to do so.)

  • Submit an application - Ready to apply? It only takes a few minutes to create an Online Account and continue to Complete Online Application.  There is a $35 application fee (non-refundable). We are unable to assess a student without a completed application.

Grade Specific requirements are listed below:

Junior Kindergarten and Kindergarten

For Junior Kindergarten children must be 4 years old by September 30.  Kindergarten is geared toward children who are 5 years old by September 30 of the entering school year. Since every child develops at a different pace, the assessment process helps place children based on their readiness and not solely on their chronological age.

Evaluation Form:   An evaluation form to be completed by the student's school is required for applicants currently attending preschool and is included in the Online Application.  Email information for the current preschool will be required and the evaluation request will be sent directly to the preschool via email.  All evaluations will come directly to Saint Benedict School.

Assessments for JK & K Students: Assessments for rising Junior Kindergarten and Kindergarten students will take place on Saturday, January 23, 2021 from 8am - 12pm. You must register to attend. Registration will open on December 1, 2020. Please check back here for the link to register.

Grades 1-8

Assessments for Rising 1st - 8th Grade Students: Once we receive your child's application and records release, we will contact you to schedule an assessment. Assessments will be scheduled beginning in January and will take place either online via Zoom or in person (TBD).

Records Release Form:  The Records Release form is part of the online Application and will allow Saint Benedict to request information from the applicant's current school. Please be sure to submit this signed form at the time of application.




Acceptance is contingent upon the evaluation of academic records, recommendations and our own school assessments. There will be no distinction made as to race, sex, or nationality. Catholic parents who are active members of Saint Benedict Church are given first consideration, followed by Catholics from other parishes, and then Non-Catholic students.  Some preference is given to siblings of current students.


In compliance with its obligations under Title IX of the Education Amendments Act (1972) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act (1973).
